First time spring crazies

So my 1 year old male beardie seems to have been having the spring crazies the past few weeks. Normally he's content to just chill and bask and wander around outside a little but now he's constantly moving and wanting to be let out to run and he tires himself out by 4 pm. Is this just normal male hormonal spring crazies? Just curious cause it's the first time I've experienced this and wondering how long it lasts. He's still eating and pooping normally, he's definitely a male so it's not egg laying behavior. His viv is 120 gal 100 deg basking spot, 85 deg cool side, UVB arcadia T5 D3 + in a reflector inside the tank.

Sounds like spring fever-+ does he calm down after being let out for awhile?

Yeah he'll calm down and look out the window for a little but then he just wants to run laps going in and out of his tank for a while. I feel bad when I have to leave for work he knocks everything over in his viv while I'm gone. How long does spring fever last? I've heard it could be months... hopefully he'll slow down a little lol

Every dragon is different+ my one goes thru it starting in January or February - 3 weeks to a month - this year I think it was a little longer- drives me crazy-

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
